If you ever find yourself wondering what you’re doing in Dubai, head over to Bazerkan at JBR for a reminder. The chilled-out yet constantly buzzing terrace at the back overlooks the azure waters of the Arabian Gulf, and the Lebanese food is executed to perfection. The (mostly) friendly staff are happy to explain the menu’s myriad options, but seasoned Lebanese foodies won’t regret homing straight in on the naughtily squelchy baba ganoush, the breath-destroying houmous Beiruty or the pungent-in-all-the-right-ways meat sambusak. Order a shish taouk, meanwhile, and you’ll surely be bowled over by the tenderness of the smoky chicken. All in all, this is a great little spot – and if you can’t be bothered to go out, they deliver, too.
